  • What'aya say girl, we do somethin' crazy
    Quit puttin' it off, you know what I'm sayin'
    Ain't like it ain't gonna happen, forever's a given
    It's already written
    Who we kiddin' baby, come on

    The stars can't line up any straighter
    Let's do it now and think about it later

    Why wait another minute
    For somethin' we should'a done yesterday?
    I know a little church
    With a preacher who could hook us up right away
    Love don't need a reason
    Baby I don't see how I could love you anymore than I do today
    So why wait

    Now I love your mama, let's save her some trouble
    And your daddy won't mind if we save him a bundle
    Girl it just so happens, that ring that you wanted
    Well guess what I bought it
    It's in my pocket baby, come on

    Let's get it done, let's get it on your left hand
    This is me, girl, poppin' the question

    Why wait another minute
    For somethin' we should'a done yesterday?
    I know a little church
    With a preacher who could hook us up right away
    Love don't need a reason
    Baby I don't see how I could love you anymore than I do today
    So why wait

    Let's do something crazy
    'Cause crazy's what you make me

    Why wait another minute
    Wait another minute come on (come on)
    Well I know a little church
    With a preacher who could hook us up right away
    Love don't need a reason
    Baby I don't see how I could love you anymore than I do today
    So why wait
    Why wait
